Anthony Bourdain had no reservations about a move to CNN. Shortly after concluding an eight-season stint at the helm of his popular Travel Channel series, the equally popular Emmy-winning host came to the news network searching for "Parts Unknown." In the hourlong weekend series -- similar in premise to Travel's "No Reservations" -- Bourdain explores the world to, he says, "eat and drink with people without fear and prejudice ... they open up to you in ways that somebody visiting who is driven by a story may not get." Enticed by the opportunity to experience cultures rarely visited by American TV, such as in the Congo, Libya and Myanmar, the chef and best-selling author also takes viewers to Colombia, Peru, Morocco and, closer to home, Koreatown in Los Angeles.

Possessed by a strong curiosity and, apparently, an even stronger digestive system, host Andrew Zimmern (a chef and food writer by trade) traverses the world in pursuit of unusual regional delicacies and startling native "delights" on the menu, as he tries to ferret out the weirdest foods a location has to offer -- possibly including ferret, actually. In addition to vivid descriptions of the taste and texture of the foods he discovers, Zimmern also provides a short history of each dish. Some of the locales Zimmern has traveled to include Ecuador, Taiwan, Iceland and Minnesota (because not all "unique" foods are found in exotic locations).

From local news and sports reporter to correspondent on ABC's "Good Morning America" and "Nightline," Bill Weir has taken a varied path in his journalism career. Another turn came when he joined CNN in 2013 to develop original programming, giving birth to "The Wonder List." In hourlong episodes, Weir travels with cinematographer Philip Bloom to five continents to tell stories of extraordinary people, places, cultures and creatures, which are at a crossroads. In a world of rapid change, how is the intrusion of modernization, climate change and tourism affecting the Galapagos, the Greek island Ikaria, the French Alps, the Dead Sea, the Florida Everglades, India, Venice, and Vanuatu, an island chain in the South Pacific? In 2050, will there still be tigers in the wild? Will the Taj Mahal still be standing? Will there still be Alps to climb and ski? "We set out to create time capsules of places we all agree are precious," Weir says.

"I have always believed that the more we know about each other, the more evolved we become," Ling says about the intent of the hourlong documentaries.
